Photography is not always about glorious sunsets, idyllic landscapes or flattering portraits... Sometimes, just sometimes, you have to shoot in adverse weather conditions; Saturday was one of them days... Weather forecast was fair with sunny intevals but you have to be willing to suffer a little to get the shots...

Canon 1D MkIII... EF 100-400... ISO 2500... 1/3200 @ f5.6 to freeze the action...

Nice to know that ladies drive too and of course that I haven't lost my charm with them...

Pit lane shot... Canon EOS 5D... EF 24-105... ISO 500... 1/160 @ f/13...

What a splendid shot 474 is, it really captures the action, how do they see to drive in that. what sort of cover do you use on your gear kenny to keep it safe and dry. and she looks well impressed sat there with the brolley up, quality.

I don't use any protection Jimmy, though maybe I should... I don't molly coddle my gear, they are tools to be used and if they can't handle the situation I won't use them in it... As long as you aren't daft enough to point the lens upwards, or try to change it in these conditions, that combination of camera and lens is OK... I keep my 5D in my Lowpro Magnum bag where it's well protected, I only get it out when I use it then put it straight back... I just wipe it all down with a cloth before I leave the event...

Thanks for the compliments...

Of course the ladies like you, Kenny.

I was on vacation in the mountains last week. I guess I shouldn't have fretted so much about getting my camera wet.

Kenny this is a terrific exhibit you've put together between the two threads. Thanks. I often think about taking my D60 out in the rain but neither it nor my lenses are moisture tight and I can't afford to replace anything for the forseeable future.
I am greatly impressed with your ability to isolate the subjects in "For Joel" and the rain swept auto race is inspirational. (Oh for a D300 with appropriate lenses) You know sometimes when I watch cooking shows on TV I marvel at how easy the chefs make it look. Well same with yoou and your action shots. I've tried some without success and I know it takes practice, practice, practice.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Joel... The ability to isolate the subject is because I nearly always shoot with the lens wide open, or there abouts... FA2 in the other thread was shot at f/3.2 on a 300mm f/2.8 prime lens, the MX biker was shot at f/2.8 on a 200 prime lens, and for the plane I used a 100-400 f/5.6 @ 380mm to fill the frame...
